ALL-IRELAND WINNING boss John Kiely has been handed a new two-year term in charge of the Limerick hurlers, while Andy McEntee is also staying on as manager of the Meath footballers.
Kiely, who guided Limerick to All-Ireland glory in 2018, was reappointed at a specially organised County Board meeting on Monday with the option of a third year in charge, according to the Limerick Leader.
While Limerick failed to defend their All-Ireland crown this year, they had a successful 2019 campaign under Kiely as they picked up National League and Munster SHC titles.
Kiely’s management team was also announced at Monday’s meeting, with Paul Kinnerk staying on as coach-selector along with fellow coach-selectors Alan Cunningham and Aonghus O’Brien.
Limerick’s 2013 Munster SHC winning captain Donal O’Grady is coming on board as a new coach-selector to replace Brian Geary.
Mikey Kiely has been appointed as the new strength and conditioning coach, while Joe O’Connor steps down after four years in the position.
Kiely comes into the role having previously worked with the Limerick footballers as well as Limerick and Clare U21 sides.
